1850 - 1870
Single-span foot bridge built c.1860, located over now disused Galway-Clifden railway line. Rusticated snecked limestone abutments having margined string course and copings, supporting concrete span of c.1970 with galvanised steel hand rails.
This footbridge is notable for its attractive rusticated limestone abutments, displaying the good quality masonry typical of railway construction in the second half of the nineteenth century. The bridge continues to fulfil its function and crosses the now-defunct Galway to Clifden railway line.
